In this study, the vitamin B12 contents were analyzed in the edible portions of various shellfish (bivalves and snails). High vitamin B12 contents (30.5–53.3 μg/100 g wet weight) were detected in mussels, surf clams, bloody clams, and freshwater clams. However, scallops and abalone had extremely low vitamin B12 contents (0.1–1.1 μg/100 g wet weight) which(More)
In this study, we characterized and quantified vitamin B12 compounds in popular edible snails Babylonia japonica and Turdo Batillus cornutus using a microbiological assay based on Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. lactis ATCC 7830. The meat and viscera of B. japonica contained 27.2 ± 9.1 and 92.8 ± 25.8 μg of vitamin B12 per 100 g, respectively. However, the(More)
